Also coming out this week; Episode 4 of The Walking Dead, continuing the gripping story of Clementine, Might & Magic strategic card game Duels of the Champions – Forgotten Wars and Reign of Giants for Don’t Starve that adds new challenges, characters and more.

Oddworld for me! πŸ˜€

    AlemanGC 23 July, 2014 @ 2:42 pm    

    Buying such old remakes/ports is the reason less gamedevs innovate us with suprising, fun & new games.

     
    Jacko_the_lad 23 July, 2014 @ 3:02 pm    

    Tell that to the people buying The Last Of Us again after it only being released a year ago.

    JediKnight246 23 July, 2014 @ 3:09 pm    

    It’s good for all the people who didn’t play it before. Not sure I’d want to buy it again though if I had already played it, those PS3 copies aren’t going anywhere.

    JediKnight246 23 July, 2014 @ 3:12 pm    

    Already have Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 but at that price it’s great if you haven’t played it yet.

    JediKnight246 23 July, 2014 @ 3:26 pm    

    Edit: oops, that last comment was meant for below, not here.

     
    Zepekit 23 July, 2014 @ 3:33 pm    

    @AlemanGC
    Nope, not at all. It’s the bugdet they think they have to have in order to make those games. This is old enough so many people haven’t played it or haven’t played it in a LONG time.
    I have the original for ps1 but i have not touched it since that time… i am buying this better version of a game i loved back in the day… and even to this day i haven’t seen this type of game as innovative, surprising, fun and new like this since the original 2.

     
    kid_Jump94 23 July, 2014 @ 4:11 pm    

    @AlemanGC youre literally just spouting negativity. where in the world is theyre lack of innovation? XD in the indie market?! (yeah sure tell that to steam and all the psn games) you do know justaddwater couldnt just make a brand new game. like they literally said that fans wanted a new game but they didnt want them to change anything but they wanted it to be new, so they re-did what they had, the original and if you go look, its really amazing and changed for the better. remember that was ps1. ps1. its not a last gen port. so just stop :/

     
    andrewsqual 23 July, 2014 @ 4:35 pm    

    @kid_Jump94 Forget it dude, he just stated in the Counterspy post http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2014/07/23/counterspy-arrives-ps4-ps3-ps-vita-next-month/ in the VERY 1st comment that he doesn’t even have a PS4. Why he would have any say at this point is absolutely beyond me.

     
    seanoc1 23 July, 2014 @ 7:20 pm    

    I was looking forward to it until I found out the price. Maybe if it is on offer in the future I will get it.

     
    Lt_Combo 24 July, 2014 @ 4:08 pm    

    @Jacko_The_Lead .. like millions of others who have a PS4, I never got to play TLOU because I don’t own a PS3 .. that said .. I’m put off by the MP censorship in EU lol
    @AlemanGC, your comment makes zero sense .. lot’s of people never played it and just because some devs make remakes of very good games doesn’t mean devs stop making new games .. remakes usually signal sequels …

     
    Lt_Combo 24 July, 2014 @ 4:10 pm    

    My major issue with Oddworld is the price XD .. 21euro, I would have expected like 10/15 .. the game is more expensive than Child of Light for example .. makes little sense to me. If it was a little less expensive I would buy it, would put 20eu on my account and use the rest to buy the Guacamelee upgrade.

 

Still waiting for a proper firmware update on PS4.

     
    ChazzH69 23 July, 2014 @ 2:39 pm    

    First what?

    AlemanGC 23 July, 2014 @ 2:41 pm    

    Mp3 was promised but Sony are liars

     
    THUNDERCAT1973 23 July, 2014 @ 2:48 pm    

    why is mp3 so important really cant understand the fuss. if i want different music i have my phone etc.

    AlemanGC 23 July, 2014 @ 2:51 pm    

    Phones do not have optical out or connect to your equipment/headset in a convient way, you really should be able to figure this out yourself why mp3 in games is a feature everybody wants!

     
    THUNDERCAT1973 23 July, 2014 @ 3:01 pm    

    sure xbox one still doe’s not support mp3 yet. could be wrong. but if mp3 is deciding factor maybe console gaming is not for you

     
    ocelot07 23 July, 2014 @ 3:10 pm    

    @AlemanGC how are Sony liars? Yes they said it is coming but never ever gave a date. So how on earth are they “liars”. For all you know Sony could release MP3 support 1 month from now or 1 year from now. If they do bring it to PS4 then they have fulfilled there promise and are there for not liars.

    Rockstart promised GTA 5 for PS4 at E3 but its not been released yet are they also liars?

     
    AlexAtkinUK 23 July, 2014 @ 3:22 pm    

    There is also 3D Bluray support, CD playback, popups to tell you when friends come online and various other things that Xbox One is now getting that Sony have been very quiet about.

    More importantly, they need to sort out categories/folders as its getting hard to navigate the list of games on my console now.

     
    DoYouLikeMyID 23 July, 2014 @ 4:39 pm    

    @ocelot07

    Well, Sony did promise the suspend/resume feature would be available at PS4’s launch, and it’s still not here yet. Also when they announced MP3 support would be coming in a future firmware update they certainly didn’t make it seem like we’d be waiting years for it. But you’re right about the fact that it doesn’t make them liars. They just didn’t make it in time. Still, in the case of the suspend/resume feature, it’s an unusually long delay for a feature that was promised for launch.

    Regardless, they certainly need to implement some of these promised features sooner rather than later, because while features like “Sharefactory” are great, no one asked for those. Sony should focus on the features people have been waiting for since launch, like suspend/resume and audio/video playback and storing features.

    And by the way, to those of you saying MP3 support isn’t important, need I remind you Kickbeat: Special Edition will be coming to PS4 soon? That game includes a music analyser that creates levels based on the music on your harddrive for crying out loud! How would that game work without MP3 support?! And there are other games too where MP3 support is important, like the upcoming WWE2K15, where you’ll be able to set a custom theme for the wrestlers (and created wrestlers) from your harddrive. And keep in mind, the customization features are a huge selling point for those games, so without those, the game won’t be as much fun, and they won’t sell as well.

    Short version: MP3 support is important, and we need it as soon as possible.

     

    About both those games they may go for more money making and set it up to work with a new kind of music unlimited

     
    Lt_Combo 24 July, 2014 @ 4:11 pm    

    Update 1.75 was just announced …. but all they said was that it would include 3D bluray .. I’m guessing to counter the new xbone update that also has 3D bluray .. would be awkward if the company that’s partly responsible for the tech wouldn’t have it on their console while the competitor does XD

MikklePirate 23 July, 2014 @ 2:34 pm   3

Any news on 1001 Spikes? Its been about a month πŸ™

 
THUNDERCAT1973 23 July, 2014 @ 2:36 pm   4

at that price will give Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 a go

AlemanGC 23 July, 2014 @ 2:36 pm   5

Sony please work harder on the store, prices, features, improvements and PSN.. Or in some years Nintendo is buying Sony to make a Mariostation 4.

    AlemanGC 23 July, 2014 @ 2:45 pm    

    For example in Deal of the week & Normal Discounts sections the second header is missing in web store and ps3 store so you cannot navigate it properly. Since many weeks already πŸ™

    AlemanGC 23 July, 2014 @ 2:51 pm    

    And where is the Last Guardian?

     
    LendMeYourVoice 23 July, 2014 @ 2:56 pm    

    Have you seen Nintendo’s attempt at online? Their store is atrocious, their prices are awful and the selection of digital titles is fairly sparse. If you think a Nintendo-owned store would be an improvement you’re delusional.

    The PSN store has a few serious issues but it’s still better than the competition.

     
    AlexAtkinUK 23 July, 2014 @ 3:23 pm    

    The Xbox Marketplace has always crushed the PSN store. It almost always works correctly from the web, but the SCE store breaks all the time.

     
    andrewsqual 23 July, 2014 @ 3:58 pm    

    @LendMeYourVoice Don’t waste your time with this guy yet again. Another Wednesday another spam created account asking for the same thing over and over again while stating subtly in other comments how Sony is doomed also but then trying to defend himself stating he isn’t saying anything offensive at all. We all said what was needed to be said here back in October 2013 http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2013/10/30/playstation-4-the-ultimate-faq/ Apparently he missed it.

 

Will We be getting the superhero deals which are available I the US? Very happy to see Abe back

    AlemanGC 23 July, 2014 @ 2:52 pm    

    We got these games discounted already a while ago in EU πŸ™‚

    Jawad Ashraf 23 July, 2014 @ 3:12 pm    

    There’ll be a ton of stuff on sale from next week so check back then (not a Super Hero Sale) including a couple of those titles, but the Plus discounts will not match the US levels.

     

    And why wont those discounts match the US levels or come even close to it? We got the exact same amount of games now.

     
    pabs010 23 July, 2014 @ 4:02 pm    

    Thanks for the reply, I was not aware that the summer sale begins from next week. As a follow up could you elaborate on why aren’t the plus discounts as much here as in the US?

     
    THUNDERCAT1973 23 July, 2014 @ 4:38 pm    

    Jawad Ashraf you do know microsoft is doing a superhero sale with most of the same games and its not just the us, if they can why cant sony? pains me to say it but they are listening and at moment have better deals than sony europe

     
    kozi_kozi_kozi 24 July, 2014 @ 4:19 am    

    Will Injustice on PS4 be included? Starting to think I should just use a US account.

     

    @kozi: You are not only missing out on better discounts without a US account, you are also missing games that probably never will get released in the EU. You will have to deal with games with broken or missing DLC, which never gets fixed. Its sad but you indeed need a US account to get treated as a customer.

Faustofausto 23 July, 2014 @ 2:37 pm   7

Another week without a proper discount… If you don’t have any idea, how should a cool sale look like, check the US Blog!

    AlemanGC 23 July, 2014 @ 2:48 pm    

    I think last time we also got the superhero games on sale a bit later…

AlemanGC 23 July, 2014 @ 2:37 pm   8

But the Sale of the Week is quite nice like most weeks I like this feature πŸ™‚

Can we expect the summer festival sale soon?

 
LordBeloved 23 July, 2014 @ 2:38 pm   9

Any sale this week by any chance? (lovely prices on the weekly deals btw πŸ™‚ )

 

I know that sales receive a dedicated topic but are we also going to get the superhero sale like in the United States? Comic-con and superheroes in general are popular here as well and the samen sale Will get definitely get a lot of attention!

 

No summer sale? πŸ™ i have 12 more days off from work. Come on! Let me spend the 80 € i have om my account. ..
And i already have lod 2, got it new for 10€

     
    LordBeloved 23 July, 2014 @ 2:39 pm    

    They hinted that the Summer Sale would be next week (or at least, not THIS week).

     
    THUNDERCAT1973 23 July, 2014 @ 2:43 pm    

    usually the summer sale is not till August.

    AlemanGC 23 July, 2014 @ 2:46 pm    

    Fred also said in the past “there will be more games on sale incoming” but then it was only vita lol

     

    Well, then my summer is almost over….

     

    Everyone has been having summer sales in July. I’d much prefer SCEE’s one to be in August — so that I actually have “new” money to spend. πŸ™‚

 
Shadowdragoon 23 July, 2014 @ 2:38 pm   12

Any new information on Cross Region Gifting. *

Following titles getting on the SEN store?
Final Fantasy Crisis Core
Ghost in the Shell: Stand alone Complex
Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleap
PoPoLoCrois
Tales of Eternia
Tales of the World Radiant Mythology
Thrillville
Valkyrie Profile Lenneth

Adding some answers to the Crossregion gifting this time.
*
Quite simply I want it in the way Like id been gifted the physical verison right (new, unopened) from that country/region that it originated. putting Digital and Physical on equal fotting.

I do mean gifts would have to be purchased as gift to (new item not used).
As for why as gift and not just let us buy from other regions, that is the same reason you can get a physical (new) copy as gift, digital should follow the SAME rules, as its technicaaally the same item, just whitout the disk.
And as its purchased in the β€œrigth” region as a gift to the β€œwrong” region it will be taxed, etc in original place of purchase, and where the original rights belong and reciver would recive the item purchased as a gift.

     
    Vashetti 23 July, 2014 @ 2:46 pm    

    You ask the same thing every week and still don’t seem to be listening.

    Kingdom Hearts BBS and Final Fantasy Crisis Core will never release on the store because the songs used in the games were never contracted to be used in digital releases of those games.

    Unless Square Enix spends money to create new contracts and update the licenses (extremely unlikely), then they will never arrive on the Store.

     

    I have been asking for this for ages! Even if it is in the same country only

Archacus 23 July, 2014 @ 2:39 pm   13

@Jawad
1. Thank you for helping us with Freedom Wars
2. Can you tell (if you can) are there any plans for sale on SEGA games this year? I’m intrested in buying Valkyria Chronicles 2 but I’d rather wait for some deals.

    AlemanGC 23 July, 2014 @ 2:47 pm    

    So when jawad helps you with something you start thinking he is sony helpline and you start the next question??

    Archacus 23 July, 2014 @ 2:55 pm    

    @AlemanGC
    No I said thank you because this is what you are supposed to do when you are grateful. And I am extremely grateful to Mr. Jawad because if not his help we wouldn’t even know that Freedom Wars will be digital only.

    And I am asking about Valkyria Chronicles because he is part of PS Store team, if there is someone who might know anything about it it is Mr. Jawad. But I know that sometimes he can’t answer so I’m not pressing him, just asking, nothing more.

    AlemanGC 23 July, 2014 @ 3:02 pm    

    Yeah but its a vicious circle that never ends, you will always have another question for jawad and suck out all his blood πŸ™

     
    zalwelgoedgaan 23 July, 2014 @ 3:07 pm    

    @Ginger Ale: Don’t judge Arch, maybe he likes the taste of blood.

    Jawad Ashraf 23 July, 2014 @ 3:17 pm    

    1. No problem. I’m glad thing have worked out (and yes I’ve put word forward for the [i]other[/i] title, too)
    2. I don’t think it will be on sale quite soon but possibly in a few months depending on our plans.

    Archacus 23 July, 2014 @ 3:24 pm    

    @Jawad
    Oh ok, thank you very much again… I guess I will have to buy full price… thank you

    @BaneyFunny
    Nah I don’t think so, I got to know everything I wanted

    @zalwelgoedgaan
    Oh no my humble sir… I have still muuuuch to learn from great historical figures like Vlad Impaler or Elizabeth Bathory… (joking)

No Dark Souls 2 Season Pass?

 
ROBERTWARNES 23 July, 2014 @ 2:39 pm   15

Is there any chance we could get the other Need for Speed games for the PSP on the Playstation Store, like “Carbon: Own The City” – πŸ˜€

     
    JoshHood 23 July, 2014 @ 3:10 pm    

    I’d also love to see some more of the PS2/PSP Need for Speeds on the Store! Loved Underground Rivals and the like back in the day and would love that on my Vita – sadly EA doesn’t seem all that bothered about their catalogue stuff πŸ™

     
    AlexAtkinUK 23 July, 2014 @ 3:26 pm    

    If only. I have been waiting for EA to make the PSP Burnout games downloadable onto my PS Vita since PS Vita launched. I only bought them to play on Vita as they work in the US, but no such luck.

Can’t wait for Oddworld’s PS3/Vita release. Couple of questions for the blog/store team:

1) Are those recent PSP (Silent Hill etc) games going to get Vita compatibility any time soon? I still can’t believe Konami made them PSP only, especially after saying they were coming to Vita.

2) Any word on Vita releases that have been out in North America for a while i.e. 1001 Spikes, Mutant Mudds, Dragon Fantasy II etc

3) Any more PS1/PSP games coming to the store? Legend of Dragoon, Dino Crisis 1 & 2 etc

    Archacus 23 July, 2014 @ 2:45 pm    

    oh… yup yup I’d love more PS1 and PSP games… like Chrono series

    + PS2 games like Odin Sphere

    …. Odin Sphere on VITA that would be -> co-co-co-combo breaker and people are loosing their pants

    but yeah I know that for know PS2 on Vita is not possible πŸ™

     
    stealthstu007 23 July, 2014 @ 3:06 pm    

    I second the Dino Crisis games to come on store, i have asked a few times before with no response

     
    zalwelgoedgaan 23 July, 2014 @ 3:06 pm    

    PS2 emulation on Vita is not possible, all they can do is ‘remaster’ the games. Emphasis on remaster, because sometimes, depending on the type of game, they run worse than their original versions.

    Jawad Ashraf 23 July, 2014 @ 3:20 pm    

    With a sweeping answer – No, or not yet. For SH, Konami would need to discuss Vita compatibility with our teams and take it from there.

    I haven’t got dates for those games or updates on upcoming legacy titles. Sorry.

     
    madmanwithabox12 23 July, 2014 @ 9:29 pm    

    Thanks Jawad, I appreciate the response. With regards to these PSP games, what’s it going to take to make these discussions happen? I honestly find it perplexing that any company would release games as PSP only in 2014, when Vita is supposed to be the thing we’re all playing. I especially don’t like that Konami’s original statement said they were coming to Vita. They not only lied about that, they did it again with Castlevania!

HeikeStagBeetle 23 July, 2014 @ 2:54 pm   17

Hello Jawad,

It’s now been four weeks since you announced that Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga would be available for the Netherlands, Russia, Belgium, Poland and a slew of other countries. And three weeks before you announced the same for DDS 2.

Unfortunately, I feel the urge to post here that these games still aren’t available in the Netherlands, and I have a suspicion that before long people from Russia, Poland and / or Scandinavia may chime in with the same claim, even though Polish customers at least have an option to find them on an English-language site.

Last week, I didn’t immediately thank you for your short response to my query, saying that you would look into the situation, because I wanted to thank you for the informed update I hoped you would follow up with.

So, first, thank you for responding last week; second, did you find out anything? As of earlier today, there was no follow-up comment anywhere on last week’s store update post. And third, would you be able to follow through on your earlier announcements?

     
    zalwelgoedgaan 23 July, 2014 @ 3:05 pm    

    Have you contacted the companies of those games? Maybe you’ll have a bit more luck then.

    Just a bit, most companies who make a mess don’t tend to reply. :/

    Jawad Ashraf 23 July, 2014 @ 3:22 pm    

    I will definitely chase it up (I had no update still)

    @zalwelgoedgaan
    I’ve sent a tweet to Ghostlight. Got a response with “We’re currently looking into why DDS is still missing from some EU PSN stores.”

    I’m still wondering why it takes SOOO long to make a game available for some countries.

    If Jawad reads this, I hope he can answer why it takes so long to make a game available and how long we still have to wait -__-.

    Also(if you read this Jawad). I want to know why Blazblue: Chronophantasma and Chaos Code are not available for the Dutch PSN store. And when will it be available for the Dutch PSN Store? I don’t want to import these games(Chaos Code isn’t even physical :/). If Switzerland and Luxembourg have these games , why can’t The Netherlands, Belgium and other countries(that are also being excluded) have these games too? I’m not accepting this >:(

    Jawad Ashraf 23 July, 2014 @ 3:39 pm    

    @Gavl1
    BB is different in that a publisher has chosen not to release the product in specific territories.
    DDS on the other hand is (should) be available to all, so I will try and get this problem solved (before next week, I pray).

     

    After waiting 3 weeks since it was announced that it is available, but still isn’t. I kind of give up waiting for it and decided to listen to others advice and bought it from the US store.
    Also discovered that the US store has alot more ps1 and ps2 Jrpg’s, which I wish the EU store would also try to get more of.

    And lastly I also got Blazblue: Chronophantasma after watching EVO 2014. Just couldn’t wait for it any longer. Especially seeing how aksys games and arc system works has been ignoring everyone that has been asking if it will come out in the remaining EU countries.

    HeikeStagBeetle 23 July, 2014 @ 4:04 pm    

    Hello Jawad,

    thank you for your replies so far – I’ve regained some confidence that a day will arrive when I can throw my money at the screen and receive these games in return. At which time I will be utterly, completely grateful to you for fixing this issue, and €20 poorer. And apologies for drawing attention away from today’s store update.

    @Jawad:
    Thank you for responding and answering my questions. Is there a way to let Arc System Works know that I want Blazblue Chronophantasma and Chaos Code available in the Dutch PSN Store? I’ve tried to sent a tweet and didn’t got a response from them. It feels like I’m being excluded because The Netherlands(and other EU countries that are also being excluded) are not important to them :/.

    @aly25:
    I know that Arc System Works are behind the digital release. Aksys released the physical version of the game in the US. Arc System Works are the cause of this problem. If Aksys released the game digitally, then we would have the game available in the Dutch PSN Store(like Muramasa, Muramasa is released digitally by Aksys).

    Jawad Ashraf 24 July, 2014 @ 9:45 am    

    Small update, one of our men is looking into this today.

    @Gavl1: Just keep being vocal in the respective BB communities to get it out there. It may or may not yield a positive result, but no harm in trying.

    HeikeStagBeetle 25 July, 2014 @ 8:17 pm    

    Small update: I am downloading them now. Thank you very much, Jawad!

AlemanGC 23 July, 2014 @ 2:54 pm   18

    andrewsqual 23 July, 2014 @ 4:44 pm    

    Lol you would make up all the complaints though. You complain enough on the great sale blog posts like the one last month for Walking Dead Season 2.

    @Lunastra78 He has the Guinness world record for most comments on EU Blog Posts on Wednesdays AND most complaints consecutively, I can tell you that much. All WITHOUT even owning a PS4 or Vita too.

!!!!! DO NOT BUY DUSTFORCE VITA, IT IS BUSTED. !!!!!

It has severe input lag and the framerate is low and inconsistent. It’s a type of game that benefits from precise controls and this trash simply does not have it.

Okay, carry on with the replies.

Why are you refusing to put Dragon’s Crown on sale for PS3 PSN in Europe? It’s on sale for us psn ps3 yet again and we get nada. A sale on vita does not count.

 

Uhm… someone forgot to put a PS4 deal for Deal of the Week.

    Seishoujyo 23 July, 2014 @ 6:16 pm    

    There are no sales on PS4, you pay the full price and you shut up, you should know that by now.

     

    Wow, what’s with the hate? I’d just want for Sony to show some love to PS4 owners for not waiting a year or two before there are games.

 
jim_sey 23 July, 2014 @ 3:05 pm   27

Hi, is there any chance of reducing Injustice Gods Among Us on PS4 or Vita. At time of writing the PS4 version is $8.40 in US compared to Β£54.99 in UK and the Vita version is $4.20 in US compared to Β£34.99 in UK. To say there is a price discrepancy is an understatement.

 
ThugETH 23 July, 2014 @ 3:06 pm   28

Nice to see Oddworld with a reasonable UK/EU price! I’ve been lucky enough to play it early and it’s an amazing remake!

@Fred @Jawad RE Dustforce Alpha Map Pack, now it’s in the deal of the week can you please try and get the Alpha Map Pack issue fixed?
It’s been like it since launch. Here is the is the issue once again:

BETA and GAMMA packs have been fixed but poor old Alpha Map Pack has never worked for anyone who bought the game at a plus discount when it launched!

i bought sniper elite 3 dlc on the ps4 page and its gave me the ps3 version >:( can anyone help?

    AlemanGC 23 July, 2014 @ 3:42 pm    

    You have to contact customer support. in both cases (your mistake or store mistake), they will probably refund you

 
GametimeUK 23 July, 2014 @ 3:11 pm   30

Any word on when Counter Strike is being released on PS3? The last thing you told us was that it was still happening?

 
NightRanma 23 July, 2014 @ 3:11 pm   31

why is Oddworld $32? I didn’t even pay that much for a brand new copy of the original on PSOne. This is so ridiculous, good job screwing yourselves out of no doubt more than just my sale.

     
    WolfRogers 23 July, 2014 @ 4:11 pm    

    Oddworld is a fully redone game, you can still buy the original PS1 version on the store, but this one was completely rebuilt from the ground up, for the amount of content it has, it’s well worth the asking price.

     
    IAmOrly 23 July, 2014 @ 4:21 pm    

    There’s a great interview with Lorne Lanning here that may answer your question: http://metro.co.uk/2014/07/08/oddworld-new-n-tasty-preview-and-lorne-lanning-interview-weve-become-triple-a-indie-4790351/

    It’s also worth noting that they’ve deliberately achieved price parity with the US, unlike every other publisher (see: current US 70% off sales). You don’t need to buy it at its full price, there’ll no doubt be a sale some day but when there’s an endless sea of “AAA” garbage I think it’s worth supporting something as unique as the Oddworld franchise.

 
Mardolina 23 July, 2014 @ 3:14 pm   32

Hi Jawad, I bought Oddworld on PS4 but it’s not showing as bought at all, I can’t rate it, like it and it’s still showing as full price. But I have it in my Library (or Download list) and can play it. Is there any reason why is the game behaving like this?

     
    Mardolina 23 July, 2014 @ 7:49 pm    

    If you’re having similar problem – re-install the game and it should be working πŸ™‚

 
Rochala 23 July, 2014 @ 3:14 pm   33

@jawad

Hey I have a problem with three games, no idea if you can help me, but if you can talk to the right people would be great.

First of I bought Sly trilogy long time ago, but some days ago I noticed that Sly raccoon (1) acts like I have never bought it.

Then Sound Shapes and Joe Danger give me an unavailable error, I can download the demos but can’t unlock them.

Also it would be nice if you can do something about using filters at oru download list and ignoring some members at blog.

 

Oddworld says Β£16.99 on the store then you click it it’s Β£17.99 thought I would point that out to you

 
Stonesthrow 23 July, 2014 @ 3:23 pm   35

Just walking dead eps 4 and Killzone maps for me.. Would’ve prefered Co op maps for Killzone though, since that’s a seperate paid for mode they added last that could definitely benefit from some extra maps (only 4 by default), more so than the multiplayer imo.. Hope to see some new maps there before I maxed out all my classes, which I’m already close to..

 
Ac3_l1ghtn1ng 23 July, 2014 @ 3:26 pm   36

Hey can someone help me out I bought the season pass for one piece unlimited world red but all the dlc for one piece has been removed from the UK store and even the newly announced dlc isn’t there. Any reason for this?

     
    sithknight666 23 July, 2014 @ 3:36 pm    

    Hey Ac3 have you tried accessing the store using a pc? Many moons ago dead space 3 dlc didnt show on console but did desktop version.

     
    Ac3_l1ghtn1ng 23 July, 2014 @ 4:03 pm    

    For some reason it keeps sending me to the US store

 
tired-hippo 23 July, 2014 @ 3:34 pm   37

Very dissapointed in the price of oddworld. It shouldn’t be more than Β£15 and frankly around the Β£12 mark. Digital only/indie games seem to be going up and this is a bad idea, as alot of these need to learn to use impulse buys more.

     
    madmanwithabox12 23 July, 2014 @ 4:09 pm    

    Umm… considering it’s a very high quality product with cross buy for all three PS platforms, the price-point is fine. They need to make a little money you know. I for one am more than happy to support the guys at Oddworld Inhabitants/Just Add Water because they always make great games with lots of love and care put into them.

     
    WolfRogers 23 July, 2014 @ 4:13 pm    

    It’s a completely rebuilt game from the ground up and it’s cross platform to (PS4/PS3/Vita), this isn’t some basic HD Port like other games, pretty much everything had to be redone and the studio worked like mad to improve almost everything, they deserve the money here.

     
    Scuffy_P 23 July, 2014 @ 4:51 pm    

    It was originally going to be Β£20, but Oddworld Inhabitants dropped the price.

    New and Tasty isn’t a remaster, it’s a complete remake, ground up, taking a small team over three years. It’s worth ever penny, and more besides.

     
    tired-hippo 23 July, 2014 @ 9:42 pm    

    Its poor psychology, the people who are going to buy oddworld are a percentage of the people who played the original game at this price. Virtually no one who hasn’t played it will touch it for that price. If it were between Β£10-Β£15 that would drastically increase the amount of buyers that haven’t played the original.

 
Un1eashedGR 23 July, 2014 @ 3:55 pm   38

Why aren’t we getting the superhero sale like US? since i bought the ps4 (day 1) we haven’t had any sale on retail ps4 game that was as good as that. Always the great sales are for ps3 (or vita sometimes). We don’t even have 1/10 of the games the ps3 has and you still don’t do discounts to games that were out 7-8 months ago for the ps4. VERY dissappointed and i never write complains.

     
    tired-hippo 23 July, 2014 @ 4:00 pm    

    Its even more depressing as its the 75th anniversery of batman….hence why it is happening.

     
    WearingFin 23 July, 2014 @ 4:26 pm    

    Actually they had the Batman anniversary sale back in May, I believe this US sale is for Comicon. Regardless, Microsoft are doing their own superhero sale with some of the same games… but for all regions.

     
    THUNDERCAT1973 23 July, 2014 @ 4:30 pm    

    we already had a sale for batman’s 75th. injustice was Β£12 for ps4. granted not as good as the us, but wages are lower than most places in europe and cost of living is higher so for them prices aren’t to much different than ours

     
    Finkhald 23 July, 2014 @ 10:55 pm    

    And actually, we had arguably a better sale for Injustice on PS4. Because the base sale price was under the US base sale price, even if the PS+ price was above the US one.

 
darthMUMPTY 23 July, 2014 @ 4:02 pm   39

Another very poor week……dont know why i bought a ps4 at launch…..nothing but rehashes and independents. Or lego games. Come on sony get it sorted. As for the sale next week…..half will probably end up on plus in the coming months anyway…..they have previous for that. So no sale from sony and no sale from me.

     
    TiggsPanther 23 July, 2014 @ 6:25 pm    

    This is always the risk of buying something at launch, or even in the first months (or year) or release. being an early adopter carries a large amount of Buyer Beware.

    And it’s even more so in a games console.

    Of course there still won’t be a huge amount of games out for it, even a year or so on. I don’t know how much advanced warning the majority of game developers got ahead of the initial official announcements but the public announcements were two years ago and the release one year ago. As I recall. And many big and involved games seem to have a development time of a year or two. If not, more.
    And that’s just for known platforms, where people already have established workflows for development and testing. Going for a whole new platform, things are going to take a bit longer at first. So there simply aren’t going to be a huge amount of PS4 games even at this point.

    Add in that the older-gen consoles may be superseded but they are not dead and have very large install bases. So there will be companies still developing for the PS3 and Xbox 360 even after the release of the newer console. A lot of the first year or two’s games are likely to be co-developed for old gen as well, ports of recent or older games (maybe getting something closer to vision, owing to less limitations) or quick-to-code indie games.

    I’m not saying that your points aren’t valid. They are, however, exactly why I tend to avoid buying something at or close to launch. Some platforms or technologies may have these issues to a greater or lesser extent but they are, basically, the inevitable curse of being an early adopter.

    I’d expect it to take off a lot more in 2015, though. Not only will there have been more dev time but it will make two whole Holiday Shopping Seasons (with a whole year of steady purchases in between) to build up a much larger install base.

Sedalo84 23 July, 2014 @ 4:03 pm   40

Hello,
The problem with Mutant Blobs – Vita Upgrade stays unsolved. I bought it, and I can download only the demo of the PS3 version of the game. Moreover, the Vita upgrade don’t appears with the mention “bought” on my PS Store.
Regards

     

    A couple of days ago I read it had been fixed so I checked the store and it wasn’t, at least for me, but when I tried to add the Delicious Vita Upgrade to the cart I was offered the choice between two versions of the bundle, one of which was free: picking this one and proceeding with the “purchase” (double check it says 0.0€) added the unlock key to my download list (and this time the Delicious Vita Upgrade appears as bought).

     

    (note: made the “purchase” described above on the web store, not on console)

     
    Sedalo84 24 July, 2014 @ 6:35 am    

    Thanks Qismat.
    I don’t read the fix what you said. However, I followed your advice, and it’s works.
    Thank you for your help.

     

    Glad to hear it worked, have fun! πŸ™‚

Scuffy_P 23 July, 2014 @ 4:47 pm   47

Considering Sony have New and Tasty as a timed exclusive for over a month, adding the cultural and historic significance of Abes Oddysee, you guys should be embarrassed about how little promotion you have given this game. I didn’t even know it was coming out until I read a review on Eurogamer.

I would’ve expected some news on the blog rather than the usual paid editorials and advertising puff pieces generally attributed to this site.

Guess they should’ve given Sony more money for you to acknowledge it even existed.

     
    zalwelgoedgaan 23 July, 2014 @ 5:45 pm    

    Sony doesn’t even bother promoting titles that are permanently exclusive for their platforms. They should be grateful that some companies are still sticking with them, even though times are tough and that it’s more beneficial to go multiplatform. Not only that, they are too busy with letting everyone know that Destiny has timed-exclusive content. WEEEEEEEEEE

counterUAVbaby 23 July, 2014 @ 5:02 pm   48
